PDQs 24 and 26 under one roof

07 december 2018

The Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) will integrate the staff of neighbourhood police stations (PDQ) 24 and 26 into one unit as of January 14, 2019. The building housing PDQ 24's offices needs major work, requiring the neighbourhood police station and its employees to be relocated. The offices and equipment in PDQ 26 have the capacity to easily accommodate all these resources in the short term.

PDQ 26 will house approximately 150 police officers, 50 school crossing guards and 4 civilian employees at its offices located at 7405 Mountain Sights Avenue in Montréal. The new PDQ will thus be able to deploy an optimal workforce to meet the specific needs of the residents and stakeholders and to undertake all police activities in the Côte-des-Neiges andOutremontsectors and Town ofMount Royal.

Increased efficiency through greater robustness

This integration will improve organizational performance as well as the robustness of work teams. In bringing all staff under one roof, PDQ 26 will continue to have the flexibility to respond to calls, as well as more resources to resolve issues on a project-by-project basis with the residents and stakeholders.

Strength in numbers

PDQ 26 will be able to add officers within the Project Action Module (MAP) in order to solve problems specific to these different sectors. Côte-des-Neiges already has a MAP: now theOutremontborough and Town ofMount Royalwill also be able to benefit from one.

In addition, PDQ 26 will have a greater capacity for foot, bicycle and vehicle patrols to address the SPVM's emerging penal, criminal and road safety challenges and issues. The experience gained in each unit over the years will allow all personnel to share and benefit from good policing practices.

Maintaining geographical responsibilities

Two lieutenants will be assigned to the Outremont-Town ofMount Royaland Côte-des-Neiges sectors, respectively. Neighbourhood road safety officers, community relations officers, the civilian consultation adviser and foot patrollers: the support staff of both PDQs will keep the same geographical responsibilities. In this way, the staff will continue to maintain a close relationship with the communities and stakeholders they currently serve.

Given its recent experience in merging PDQs 37 and 38, the SPVM now has the expertise to manage this type of project. The integration of PDQs 24 and 26 will be based on that experience. Further information on the integration of PDQs 24 and 26 will be provided in the coming weeks.
